Ottawa Public Health Immunizations
On April 28 and 29 Ottawa Public Health will be administering immunizations to all grade 7 students, and all female grade 8 students at All Saints. Consent forms were distributed in the fall to all students and were to have been returned during the fall immunization period. Should you happen to still have your form, please sign it and return it to the school with your child next week. If your child was not a student at All Saints during the fall immunization cycle, please see the information and download the consent form by using the following link
Please ensure that your child eats breakfast and wears a short sleeved shirt on the day of immunizations.
Any questions regarding your child's immunizations can be directed to Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744.
Our grade 7 students participated in
presentations this past week at All Saints. Students worked through designing and creating Maker Mobile small models with the help of 3D printers. Students took ideas through the creation and design phase and were able to see their designs come to life. This opportunity supports many of the 21st Century learning skills we are trying to advance at the school. Students collaborate together to create while thinking critically and communicating with one another. And it is fun too!
Our grade 8 students have been creatively working very hard through the I-cubed activity here at All Saints. Investigate! Invent! Innovate!, or I-cubed, is a curriculum-aligned program for Grade 7 & 8 students that integrates science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills and 21st Century competencies such as critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication. These skills help students develop the abilities needed to succeed in a globally competitive workplace.
Students identify a problem or opportunity in their daily lives and then invent a product or processes to solve the problems, based on
concepts they learn in class. The program culminates with annual Invention Conventions in various cities across Canada (from the Learning Partnership website).
Our grade 8 students presented this past week at the school, and then took some of their creations to the Richcraft Recreation Complex here in Kanata. Congratulations to all those students who worked hard to produce a creative innovation.
